The Elemental Thunder Bags are made for use in the Thunder Down Under Portable Toilet but can be used in most other non-flush toilets.
They’re the hygienic and environmental-friendly way of waste disposal in the bush.
• 100% biodegradable
• One pack consists of 12 liner bags
Great product. Doesnt fit the jimmys thunderbox though. I had to tape two together. Bags need to be at least 40cm on a side to stretch over the thunderbox edges. Still love snowy's though!
Sowy's service A+++! Havent tried the bags yet - hope they fit on the Thunderbox (they look a little small)
Have not tried them yet however thumbs up to Snowys for the great prompt service.
Used the first bag while camping on the Eyre hwy. we thundered in the bag and it worked fine in the bucket toilet we have. Would recommend to any. Far easier than the portable toilet we had and the kids are less likely to overfill it.
Just the heads up, these don't perish immediately. Its safe to use for your business and later on it decomposes. Great purchase!
So what is the right way to dispose of these bags with their waste? Down the toilet that is town sewerage and what about toilets that use a septic tank?
I wasn't entirely sure about this, so I gave Elemental a call to see what they recommended for disposing of their Bio-degradable Toilet Bag Liners. They told me that because they're bio-degradable, you can bury them and they'll break down. The same goes for septic tanks, if you flush them, they'll break down.
Hello I was wondering how these bags seal and if it is ok to dispose of them in a rubbish bin? (As one would disposable nappies) Thanks
Unfortunately, the Elemental Bio-degradable Toilet Bag Liners aren't able to be sealed. You'd need to knot the bag.
In terms of disposal, it really comes down to local regulations of the area you are travelling in. Some councils/land owners don't mind you throwing in bins, other prefer you use dump points. Best to check with them.
Hi, can you use a biodegradable toilet additive such as biomagic with these for a day or two to control the smell? I'm concerned it might accelerate the bags breakdown. Some of the other brands with bags come with a powder you add to help with odour etc.
I've just given the supplier a call about your questions, and this is what they've told me.
Elemental have told me that they don't think it's a good idea to add any chemicals to the waste, as they're not sure if there would be an issue with acceleration, so we wouldn't recommend using Biomagic or any other powders.
These bio-degradable bags are also not ideal for storing waste in for long periods of time, they're designed to be one use, and then disposed of at an appropriate dump point as soon as possible.
I have the bush dunny - wiil these bags open up enough to fit the square bush dunny?
They won't fit sorry Daz. We have tried to get replacement bags for the Bush Dunny before with no success. We recommend the use of biodegradable garbage bags as an alternative, or just digging a really deep hole, which is what the Bush Dunny is really designed for.
As commonly found at roadside rest areas, picnic areas, and the like.
I've just had a look at the packaging on the Elemental Toilet Bag Liners, and they are 100% biodegradeable so they should be fine to dispose of in long drop toilets.
It is always a good idea to do a quick double check before disposing of waste, as these things can be a little tricky and you don't want to get yourself into a mess so to speak!
Not a good idea to dispose in long drops as they are usually pumped out and anything other than the three P's can cause problems with the pumping equipment.
Thanks for letting us know, this is a topic that we always recommend that people do their homework on before they dispose of waste at any disposal point (where it be a longdrop or otherwise) just to be on the safe side.
I have a separett toilet in my demountable. I usually change the bags every two weeks. Would your liner last this long?
Dig a hole & bury it or somehow else??
